OPIM with Global Traveller Asset Management to start Special Thematic Fund

Thursday, August 24, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - OP Investment Management Ltd., one of Asia's leading hedge fund platforms, has partnered with Global Traveller Asset Management Company to launch an equity long-biased, Cayman-domiciled hedge fund for professional investors.

The Fund, managed by Portfolio Manager and CEO Zheng Wang, utilizes thematic macro strategies, as well as fundamental analysis to build on a large cap portfolio. The strategy leverages on both macroeconomic and cyclical industry analysis whilst leveraging on big data and quantitative fundamentals to discover opportunities in the US, Hong Kong, and China A-share markets. The portfolio positions can range from high tech and new economy sectors to traditional cyclical industries.

"Our investment strategy leverages our proprietary quant model and top down allocation. The model will identify both directionally long or short opportunities." Mr. Wang quotes. The Global Traveller team believes that this year is the best time for investment; with positive and consistent returns earned over a cycle of 10%. The Fund's net NAV is up 40.7% year to date, and it has outperformed the NASDAQ and SZSE-300 Index for three years in a row.

With extensive experience in fund management, Mr. Wang previously held the role of Associate Investment director at River Fund Investment (Shanghai) Co., and was a Portfolio Manager at Lord Abett china Asset Management Company, before founding Global Traveller Asset Management and managing the Fund.

Mr. Wang's career began at First-Trust Fund Management as an assistant analyst, then becoming senior analyst. He obtained his Bachelor of Economics at Xiaman University and his MBA at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics in April 2012.

This will be OP Investment Management's first special thematic fund launched off their platform, having signed on 16 new funds for the first half of 2017.

"Even with the recovery in the market this year supporting both managers and investors, Global Traveller represents a unique opportunity for any investor looking for alpha, and the strong track record speaks to Wang's rare edge in both top down and bottom up methodology." Alvin Fan, Chief Executive Officer of OPIM added.
